Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. (Philippians 2: 2)

Father,

We give you thanks and praise on this our 32nd Anniversary! You have seen us through the lean times, the mean times, the fun times and the “we ain’t got none” times. We’ve lived through some scary times, contrary times, some wary times and very,very sour cherry times.

But all together, the good, the bad, and the ugly have created a sort of fertilizer that has grown our love in ways we never could have hoped. That’s what you meant when you thought of Romans 8:28. You combine all our experiences, all our missteps, all our strengths, all our sins (graciously forgiven and forgotten), and you create a life that is worth living and a love that is worth having.

So today we lift our cup of thanks to You, Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith and this marriage.

In Jesus Name Amen.
